Your dental license can be sentenced due to a violation related to your approach towards a patient. It’s important to keep professionalism when it comes to your duties as a dentist to ensure a continuous career, as well as a better reputation as a practitioner of dental treatment.

An incident of dishonorable conduct occurred on or about March 10, 2016, where a dentist failed to provide a fair dealing with a patient. The dentist recommended the following to her patient without any clinical and radiographic justification:

  • Restorations on fourteen teeth of a minor patient.
  • Restoration on 5 of another minor patient’s teeth. Four out of the 5 teeth are primary.

The said violations could have caused further issues to the dental health of the two minor patients. It could also result in potential injury as well as follow-up treatments that are not entirely necessary due to improper care and unfair dealings. Therefore, complainants filed a complaint to the Texas Board of Dental Examiners to investigate the matter.

The Texas Board of Dental Examiners received the said reports of misconduct and summoned the dentist for a hearing regarding the issue. Due to the lack of explanation provided by the dentist, her dental license was subjected to a warning for disciplinary action. The disciplinary action was made possible to ensure that the dentist will be able to practice her duties correctly in the future.

The Texas Board of Dental Examiners are the ones who review complaints regarding dentists. They are the ones who also provide sentences such as suspension, disciplinary proceedings, and revocation of license, depending upon the severity of the case. These are scenarios wherein a dental license attorney is crucially needed by the dentists to receive further assistance.
